Sticky Orange Chicken

20th December 2018

Cook Time15 mins

Yields1 Serving

 30 g coconut oil
 30 g butter
 650 g chicken (diced)
 10 g soy sauce
 180 g orange juice
 30 g white wine vinegar
 35 g soft brown sugar
 2 garlic cloves
 ¾ tbsp ginger
 ½ tsp chilli flakes
 salt and ground pepper
 30 g plain flour
 (optional) sesame seeds to sprinkle on top of chicken to serve

1

Place the coconut oil, butter and chicken in a wok and then turn on a medium-low heat and start to cook. Make sure you keep regularly turning the chicken.

2

Whilst the chicken is starting to cook in a separate bowl mix the soy sauce, orange juice, white wine vinegar and the brown sugar. You can now leave this on the side for a bit.

3

Now season the chicken with the garlic, ginger, chilli flakes and salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.

4

Once the chicken looks as though it's cooked all the way through then pour in the bowl containing the sauce. Turn the heat up to medium-high to allow the sauce the thicken and stick to the chicken. Make sure you keep stirring. At this stage I tend to sprinkle in the flour to help thicken it, however make sure you don't just throw the flour in and then get left with clumps of it. This stage should only take around 5 minutes and then you're ready to eat! Additionally, if you're wanting to add sesame seeds on top do this once you've served it up.

I recommend serving with rice and a portion of broccoli.
